Amusement Park Accidents
A day at an amusement park is supposed to be a fun and memorable event but it doesn’t always work out that way. There are more instances than you may think of accidents at amusement parks that result in injury. A few examples of amusement park accidents are the failure of a ride to function as intended (such as getting stuck on a rollercoaster or being thrown from a ride due to a sudden stop), a slip and fall on a substance on the ground, tripping on something placed in a walkway or being hit by a falling object.
Just as any landowner, the operator of an amusement park has the responsibility to maintain the grounds in a safe condition. The amusement park owner may be found at fault for an accident if it did not meet the industry standards or requirements. They have a duty to check their rides on a regular basis to make sure they are functioning properly and to inspect their premises for any potential dangerous conditions.
If you are injured at an amusement park, it is important to do the following:
1. Report the accident to the park immediately;
2. Ask to fill out paperwork to document your accident;
3. Ask for the names and contact information of any potential witnesses;
4. Save any photographs that you took at the scene of the accident;
5. If you are in pain, seek emergency medical care and tell the doctor about all of your injuries.
It usually takes a complete investigation of the circumstances surrounding the accident to determine whether the amusement park can be held responsible for the accident. It may take an expert in the industry to review the documents, conduct testing and take measurements/photographs to assist in the process of deciding whether there is a strong case against the property owner.
